In our daily work as engineers, it isn’t always sufficient to be knowledgeable in our own field of expertise. We are often expected to understand the essential principles or sciences behind other engineering disciplines and specializations. With that in mind, this webinar provides a clear demonstration of basic electrical principles for non-electrical engineers. Having a firm grasp of these fundamentals will not only help you understand the basic theory of AC/DC circuits, but it will also increase your versatility and help you communicate better with engineers in other disciplines.

We will begin with a look at the simplest of DC or battery circuits, and then we will discuss the concepts of voltage, current, and power. We will also examine the relationship between resistors and electrical power, and study how current flowing through resistors generates heat—or, perhaps more precisely, how electrical energy is turned into heat energy. This process takes place in a number of electrical appliances, such as space heaters and water heaters.

In the AC portion of the webinar, we will first give our attention to the fundamentals of AC circuits. Then we will observe how, instead of working with pure resistances, alternating current faces impedance or (imaginary) reactance caused by inductance and capacitance. Numerous pictures and graphs used in this presentation will help show how these aspects of alternating current work. As a result, you will come to understand most of the electrical concepts used in the industrial world. There is no doubt that AC circuit theory can cause engineers a lot of difficulty; however, this webinar will make it easy to see and understand.

Special Note: Course E-2059 and webinar E-2016W are alternate presentations of the same course material. Therefore, only one version, either the course or webinar, can be taken during a renewal cycle. If you have any questions regarding course eligibility, please contact our Customer Service Team.
